I've never ridden in a Jeep with the Cepek lift, but the Skyjackers are fine. I've had good luck with Superlift too.

OK first get a JB Slip yoke eliminator, then do a SOA, trust me you are going to want this later anyway when you graduate the I wonder stage, so might as well do it the first time, get some Con-Ferr spring mounts ditch your Track bars cut them and make then into a ladder bar you can do all this for under $600 minus tires and gears. The SOA is easy to do. Email me if you got ???? but Iím telling you this is the way to go. Dave

Awsome advice if he drove a YJ!!!

I would not suggest a spring over comversion for a mostly stock CJ-5, their narow width and short wheelbase make them a handful to keep on 4 wheels.

Tuff Country soft ride seem to be the softest Cj-lifts out there, skyjacker are also soft but have a reputation for losing some lift.
